Jordy Smith Flips Out In The Mentawais

It was the flip heard ‘round the world. During a session at Macaroni’s in the Mentawais (Indonesia), South African sensation Jordy Smith pulled off what was immediately deemed “The Best Trick Ever”. Perhaps it was the all-star Red Bull crew (Mick Fanning, Michel Bourez, Kolohe Andino, and more) that inspired him to do something that groundbreaking and futuristic.
